Vaccinations have been shown to reduce our risk of getting serious illnesses.
We have all received vaccines against measles, mumps, rubella, polio, diphtheria, tetanus when we were children as these immunizations were needed to enter school. Now children can also get immunized against chickenpox, hepatitis B and HPV. There is a lot of evidence that shows that getting the yearly flu (influenza) shot not only lowers your chance of getting the flu, but it helps protect the loved ones around you too.
We advise people with CF to get the COVID-19 vaccine and annual influenza vaccinations.
People who will be receiving a lung transplant must get up to date vaccinations to protect against illness after transplant.
